Classic strawman, Trump killed more innocent people now than Obama in years.

If they can't see what's happening, and still come up with drivel to somewhat legitimize endless Total War, they're officially lost to the perception management one way or another.

We'd need something extreme to have our annoying cave dwellers actually forget their wall of shadows for a brief moment...

Threats don't break anything of the Geneva conventions, but mass murder, mass rape, and genocide does. Time to get back to reality instead of being scared of what people think.

There was a nuclear holocaust before WW2?

Must've missed that one in the history books.

Nuclear holocaust wasn't illegal pre-WWII.

What other people think can get innocent people killed. Diplomacy and tact are not for naught.

That depends upon your definition of "nuclear holocaust".


Articles 51 and 54 outlaw indiscriminate attacks on civilian populations, and destruction of food, water, and other materials needed for survival. Indiscriminate attacks include directly attacking civilian (non-military) targets, but also using technology such as biological weapons, nuclear weapons and land mines, whose scope of destruction cannot be limited. A total war that does not distinguish between civilian and military targets is considered a war crime.

Families of enemy warriors are fair game.


Terrorists say the same thing about your family.

What makes you or us better if we do the same?

By the way: Hi Steve!


Ha ha - we are talking about WAR and debating the finer points of who is and who is not off limits.


Terrorists consider it war.

And yes, there were finer points involved, the scope of which, perhaps, you failed to comprehend.
